    I'm sorry you can spend 100M over the cap, but EK is gone, and you will never be forgiven POS.

    Last time Melnyk was in the limelight, Karlsson was traded the next day (or was it the day after?)

    So Bettman's planning a 4 year lockout, I guess.

    Question is, was Boro holding the mic while Melnyk delivered his eulogies on Stone and Duchene as Sens players of the past?

    Sorry Eugene, you’ve already played the “I’ll spend when it’s time to compete” card and (like everything else out of your mouth) it is complete and utter BS.

    Take your snakeoil elsewhere. No one is buying this crap.

    Prove it. You can start by signing Duchene and Stone.

    Umm what about, you know, NEXT YEAR WHICH IS 2020!

    This quote basically says “we are trading the 3 UFAs momentarily, but please buy tickets I promise to spend a lot of money in the future, just not now obviously.”

    This I have less an issue with. As the game gets younger and the big name players get insane money right away, it makes planning far ahead impossible.

    I'd like to think we should spend to the cap every year but that's not reasonable, and probably not a good idea in the long run, we should value flexibility higher than most teams.

    In Toronto he makes a promise to Sens fans, and the man wonders why no one in Ottawa likes him.

    He’s also made this promise before and broken it. He’s completely out of touch

    I wonder what Melnyk's definition of "close to the salary cap" is.
